Sex Inside a Dumpster? Teen Couple Arrested for Lewdness
A teenage couple in Augusta were arrested yesterday after a resident of Wylds Woods Apartments saw them having sex in the breezeway of the complex, a sheriff's report says.
When a deputy arrived to investigate, he found them in a nearby dumpster behind Rugged Warehouse, where the teenagers appeared they had just dressed in a hasty manner, the report says.
Joshua Adams, 17, and Tiffany Odom, 18, were both arrested and taken to the Richmond County Jail on charges of lewdness and indecent exposure.
Several witnesses, including a property manager, said they had seen the couple "fornicating in public before" or "committing indecent acts in public."
One woman was so shaken by what she saw that she told the deputy she wanted the teens arrested and wished to be subpoenaed to testify against them. She was the one who first spotted them around 6 p.m. at building 1501 of Wylds Woods, lying on the ground with their pants down and "fornicating," a report says.
When the couple saw her, they went inside the apartment where Odom lives, but the girl's mother reportedly made them leave and they ended up in the dumpster behind Rugged Warehouse. When the deputy arrived and found them in the dumpster, the couple said they were just trying to escape the light rain.
